Who We Are


"Rebuilding broken lives, families, and communities on The Cornerstone, Jesus Christ through declaration and discipleship."



We are a church that shares Christ with the world through gospel declaration; we believe in declaring Christ's good news in every sphere of life as the only means to man's salvation, transformation, and growth.


We are a church that shares our lives through gospel demonstration; we believe people will see The Gospel and heart of God through life engaging evangelism/discipleship, radical hospitality, and intentional diversity.


We are a church that seeks to bless our community with gospel deeds; we believe our community will feel The Love of God through our pursuit of justice, sacrificial service and acts of extreme generosity.

A Focus on Prayer

If we are going to see the Lord's Kingdom advance in Northwest Detroit, the spiritual dead come to life, disciples made for Christ, and personal spiritual growth in our lives, PRAYER must be PARAMOUNT. As a church family, we have drifted from emphasizing prayer recently. We must reset and make prayer a much bigger priority in our church body. Prayer is non-negotiable if we desire to see The Lord move greatly in our church body and community. 

A Community of Prayer

We as a church family gather for prayer every Sunday at 10:30 am prior to Worship Service. I want to encourage you to make this a priority at least once or twice a month. Together let's make prayer a priority. 

Prayer Requests

We also just began using a new resource called Prayer Loft.  This is a great way to share prayer requests, pray for others and to be intentional in prayer.  Check it out HERE.  Please feel free to add prayer request (this can be done anonymously as well).
